I have 4 Halo h5r1cat recessed lights in one room off one switch. They were working fine for the last 5 years. Then one bulb goes out and I replace it, it still doesn't work, try another bulb that I know works and it still doesn't work. The bulb is a 50w Halogen Flood PAR bulb.

The real tough one is that if I put a regular light bulb (the one that looks like the idea symbol), it works.

How crazy is that?

I agree with Joed and would check that first...

Had the same thing happen on a new fridge when the light bulb blew..

Tore it half apart looking for a bigger problem..

Yes, you are right but gettting to it is a pain

Bingo!, the tab is pushed in and it would make sense why a connection is not made. Now the challenge is how to bend it back out. I tried needlenose pliers, I tried a fish hook, tiny screwdriver but they don't work. I need something very small in a L shaped to pull it back out.

Thank you for solving my mystery.
